For the facts on Section 508 and how it affects web site (and other) design issues, see the following on

"Questions and Answers About the U.S. Disability Standards for Web Sites," (In which I wrote: "The new federal standards require, among other things, that the web sites of federal agencies be made accessible to people with physical disabilities. The standards were developed in response to the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1998, a law that applies to all federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain or use certain kinds of technology, including computers, software and electronic office equipment.")

"An Overview of Federal Guidelines for Making Web Sites Accessible to the Disabled,"
